Pitzer College has a unique campus with a lot of character. Recent years have shown some of the school's most prosperous developments, with old buildings being torn down and new ones sprouting up as frequently as the plant life on campus. The newest additions to Pitzer's campus include the Pit-Stop Café, a student-run coffeehouse with everything to satiate a hungry college student's needs. During the 2007-2008 school year, freshmen were able to enjoy the brand-new, Gold LEED-certified dormitories that continue to be favorites. Students are currently anticipating the completion of even more residence halls to accommodate Pitzer's ever-growing student body. Pitzer is well on its way to creating a beautiful campus with state-of-the-art facilities. Phase One of the Residential Life Project has already been completed, and everyone is looking forward to the day that all of the renovations come to fruition.
Students are able to access many of the facilities at the other four Claremont Colleges, including the Honnold/Mudd Library, which holds more than two million books and journals. Other recent additions to Pitzer's campus include the outdoor volleyball and basketball courts. Students adore these plazas, and a good game is always up for grabs. The pool at the Gold Student Center is another place that students frequent, and with the beautiful Southern California weather, who could blame them? By far, the most popular hangout on Pitzer's campus is the Mounds. These small, lush hills serve students who wish to sleep, read, catch up with friends, play musical instruments, or anything else you can think of. There are always students on the Mounds (except when it's raining—Pitzer students rarely venture outside of their dorms when the weather is nasty).
